Our basic recipe allows for easy customization.
One of the coolest things about our keto chocolate bark is that you can use our basic recipe as a platform to experiment with your own custom holiday bark creations. The sky is the limit when it comes to fun and unique combos that would work fabulously together. Brave chocolatiers have gone as far as to add sugar-free gummy candies, keto marshmallows, rosemary, and even bacon. Duh—I suppose the latter is a keto no-brainer!!
If you come up with a winning combo, we’d love for you to share it with us in the comments section.
I bet you already have most of the ingredients on hand!
The basic recipe is made up of eight fairly common keto pantry items. In fact, the only thing that I didn’t already have available was the unsweetened Baker’s chocolate.
Sugar-Free Keto Chocolate Bark
yield: 12 SERVINGS
A festive chocolate bark recipe with three simple and delicious variations.
- 5 tablespoons block cream cheese (brought to room temperature)
- 5 tablespoons coconut oil
- 6 tablespoons erythritol, powdered
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract (If you're not using a variation, then add an additional 1/8 teaspoon.)
- 2 tablespoons salted butter
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate bar
- 3 tablespoons erythritol, granular
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Variation #1, Classic Peppermint Bark:
- 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 3 tablespoons sugar free peppermint candy, crushed (used for topping)
Variation #2, Almond Joy:
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 3 tablespoons coconut flakes, unsweetened (used for topping and in cream layer if desired)
- 3 tablespoons roasted almonds, crushed (used for topping)
Variation #3, Orange Hazelnut:
- 1/4 teaspoon pure orange extract
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated orange rind (used in cream layer)
- 3 tablespoons hazelnuts pieces (used for topping)
1) If you don’t own a double boiler, simply stack a metal or glass bowl on top of a saucepan. Be sure the bowl fits nice and snug. Put 1 to 2 inches of water in the bottom pan. Heat the pan on medium to medium-high heat. Make sure that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water when it’s inserted into the pan. Now you’re ready to rock and roll!
2) When spreading your layers onto the parchment paper, don’t try to be a perfectionist. Once the toppings go on and the bark is cut, it will look beautiful. I promise!
3) For the best eating experience, I highly recommend munching on your bark straight out of the freezer. When brought to room temperature, the bark will soften a bit and lose the hard, classic texture of traditional chocolate bark.
Score! A thumbs up from our picky eater!!
Hmm… Suddenly our freezer is getting a whole lot of action!
Don’t forget to share your own bark combinations with us. We can’t wait to see what all you creative confectioners come up with.
